New Options Design: Bigger Fonts, Customizable Settings
Open the Options section in Seesmic Desktop 2 and you'll notice some updates to the Settings options located within the General tab. Along with notification updates, you can now enable highlighting features, enable/disable automatic URL shortening, and adjust your font type and size.
We brought about a new feature in the top line of each column. Just hover and click between columns when you see the arrows icon and this will allow you to drag to adjust the width of the columns. You can also double click here to reset the column to the default width.
Search by realname and other search options
We've added additional options to the Search bar so now you can Search for Twitter people and can search by username or can search by a user's real name too. The Twitter seach options available are Twitter – for basic searches, Twitter Accounts – search for users to view their profile in the profile pane, and Twitter People-search just for users here.
Marketplace available in the sidebar
We've added the Marketplace to the Sidebar actions so you have easy access to browse all plugins new and old and have this side by side to your other timeline columns so you can manage everything all at once.
Click on the the Featured tab to view what the current popular plugins are. Review plugins in the New tab to see what's new. Browse in the Categories tab to view plugins under the major categories. Then go ahead and click on the Search tab if you are looking for something in particular. Find what you are looking for then install it right then and there. No more opening up a separate browser window just for the Marketplace, its all in one place.
